Block house to Silvertree Trail Run

Our trail grading: ORANGE 5A
Distance: 11km
Extremeness: A long up-hill & technical single track
Location: Newlands Forest, Cape Town, South Africa
Joggers: Francois du Toit, Ryan Goosen, Willem Pretorius & me

Today we decided to extend our regular Wednesday route. We climbed to the block house and then followed the contour single track towards Kirstenbosch. Instead of taking the first turn-off to Newlands Forest, we carried on until we crossed the Silver Tree route. When then descended using Silver Tree and headed back. A beautiful route that ended to quickly - we should probably extend the route further!
